Field Population based on file type seems inconsistent.

I am seeing issues when trying to analyze and write to different file types and ID3 versions.

The following fields populate and will display properly in MP3Tag for MP4 and MP3(ID3v2.2). They are blank for MP3(ID3v2.3 APEv2)
- Energy Level
- Mood Valence
- Mood Arousal

- Danceability does not show up for any of the files

    My reason for all of this is the following: I use Platinum Notes to process my files before I tag them. Most of my songs are AAC, but PN will not convert to AAC only MP3. I need to be able to run BeaTunes to analyze and populate MP3 files. Those files get created by PN as MP3(ID3v2.3 APEv2). I have attached a file for you if you would like to look at it.

    Regarding the file you sent:

    How has it been processed so far?

    Is it correct to assume that the next step would be running a beaTunes analysis and then finding values for Energy Level, Mood Valence, Mood Arousal and Danceability?
